Re: [Strange Paradise] a new set of recordings
- Hey Curt,
I received that disk as well. It really looks great. The picture is really clear. I have never seen any of Scary Guy Videos so I can't really compare but I have bought tapes off of ebay in the past and the picture quality of the new disk cannot compare. I hope everyone will get a chance to check it out. I look forward to seeing something on the website!

> Hi, gang! Well, it looks like some SP fans out there are trying to give SkaryGuyVideo a run for his money. I just received the first disk in a new set of fan-made DVD recordings of our beloved series, and it looks pretty nice. Not that I'm slamming the previous DVD set that I helped compile several years ago, but this new disk looks a bit slicker in its design, and offers more goodies than the old one. Nice color pictorial menus and bonus slideshows are cool features, but my biggest concern is always the picture quality. Two of the five episodes on the disk appear to be exactly the same as our old set, but the other three (including the pilot), look to be stronger captures of the Drive-In Classics broadcasts. Their colors are less murky, and and the picture seems crisper to my eye. I know someone has been posting episodes to YouTube lately, so perhaps this new set (the "Conjure Doll set", judging from the DVD's opening image) has some connection to that project. Anyway, just thought I'd share the news that some fresh recordings are filtering out to the fan circuit. Hopefully, I'll be able to get a mention of it up on www.maljardin.com sometime soon.
- Curt, I've seen the first disk in this new set also. The quality is the best of any versions I have seen yet. I especially enjoyed the first appearance of Raxl's temple in episode #3 - the colors and clarity were superb! There's also a neat extra - a slide show of the lost "vignettes" script. I hope this becomes available to fans somehow!
